Florida Libertarians offer best likely alternative to Trump and Clinton
This morning, March 16, 2016, Floridians are waking up to the realization Donald Trump has won the Florida Republican Primary and Hillary Clinton as the winner in the state’s Democratic Party Primary. The Libertarian Party of Florida (LPF) is offering Floridians credible alternatives for those not interested in voting for Trump or Clinton in the November 2016 presidential election.
Char-Lez Braden, Chair of the Libertarian Party of Florida, said, “We are proud to offer Floridians far better alternatives to the two old party candidates and welcome voters to see which candidates are most in line with their personal value system. Floridians, as well as Americans, are fed-up with establishment politics and are seeking better alternatives to lead the nation.” The national Libertarian Party will select their presidential nominee at their national convention happening in Orlando, Florida on May 28, 2016.
The top field of Libertarian presidential candidates are Dr. Marc Allan Feldman, Governor Gary Johnson, John McAfee, and Austin Petersen. The candidates will appear in the first nationally televised Libertarian Party Presidential Debate on April 1, 2016 via Fox Business Network at 8:00 p.m. Eastern. Dr. Feldman is a well-respected physician at the Cleveland Clinic owner of Openivo, Inc. Johnson is a two-term Governor of New Mexico and a self-made millionaire businessman. He was the Libertarian nominee in 2012 and received 1.3 million votes. McAfee is well known as the developer of the first commercial anti-virus program which bears his name. Petersen used to work at Libertarian Party national headquarters and now runs the popular new magazine, The Libertarian Republic.
Many of the Libertarian Party Presidential candidates will be attending and speaking at the Libertarian Party of Florida’s state convention in West Palm Beach, Florida in April 2016.
While the number of registered voters for the Florida Democratic and Republican candidates declined from 2014 to 2015, the number of registered Libertarian voters has increased. This further shows that Florida voters are moving away from the two older parties and move to the growing Libertarian movement. In a 2015 Gallup survey, 27 percent of Americans identified themselves as being libertarian.
